In orchards, one can apply Jivamrita straight below the fruit tree, little outside the shadow of the tree at noon. The feeder roots are situated at the outer periphery of the noon shadow of the fruit tree.

    Based on the age and growth of the fruit trees, two to five-liter Jivamrita per plant is to be provided, twice a month, if possible.

    In the initial 2-3 years, how much Jivamritam you can add to the soil, you can get miracle results. Especially, during the monsoon season, there is continuous proper moisture in the soil, and the temperature range is between 24-32 degrees centigrade and relative humidity is in the rage of 90%, which is an ideal range for soil microorganisms to perform their activities well.

    If possible, apply as much as JIvamrita to soil, near the periphery of the noon shadow during the monsoon season.

    There are three different ways, in which we can use Jivamrita in our fields

    1. With irrigation water
    2. Apply as foliar sprays to your plants
    3. Apply straight on the soil surface

    During rainy season, since we do not give irrigation water, it is very essential to apply Jivamrita straight on the soil between two vegetable plants or below the fruit tree a little (about a foot) outside the noon shadow of the tree.

    Category: Jeevamritha

    Comment on this FAQ

    1. Jivamrita spray increases the leaf index, which means the surface area of the leaves. Let’s see how this helps in increased food production?

    One square foot of leaf surface uses 12.5kilo calorie of solar energy and prepares 4.5gm food by photosynthesis. This means we have2.25gm vegetable or fruit production and 1.5gm grain production.

    When we increase the surface area of he leaves, production of the crop is incerased.

    2. Jivamrita, also acts as a fungicide. When the atmospheric humidity is increased because of cloudy weather, then the growth of harmful fungus and pathogens is also increased, and they attack the crops. By applying Jivamrita as foliar spray, it controls the leaves from there harmful pathogens and fungusus.

    3. During peak summer and winter, Jivamrita spray protects the leaves from getting damaged by blowing hot air or cold waves. This is done by controlling the stomata opening and closing sytem and, also by controlling the transpiration flucturations.

    4. Jivamrita foliar spray, protects the crop from harmful Ultra-violet rays of sun.

    5. Lastly, in extreme dry conditons or in water logged conditions or in over irrigated fields, the soil micro-organisms may die. This result in lack of nitrogen availability through the soil to the plants. In such, adverse situations, by spraying Jivamrita on leaves, free living nitrogen fixing bacteria sit on the leaves. THey take nitrogen straight from the atmosphere and supply to the leaves. Jivamrita, is the best source of such Diazotropicus type of bacteria.

    Definitely. One can not only improve the production of vegetables but can also provide protection from harmful fungusus and bacteria by following the Jivamrita spray schedule, given by Subhash Palekarji in his book Vegetable Crops, Part 1.

    Note: All foliar spray should be done during morning hours (before 10AM) during hot days. During winter, the spray can be applied during day time.

    1. First spray, is one month after seed sowing or transplanting of seedlings. For 1 acre, take 100 lt water, to this add 5 ltr filtered Jivamrita and spray.
    2. 21 days after the first spray, schedule your second spray. For 1 acre, take 150 litres water, to this add 10 litres filtered Jivamrita and spray.
    3. Schedule your third spray, 21 days after the second spray. For 1 acre, take 200 litres water, to this add 20 litres filtered Jivamrita and spray.
    4. By now, it is the initial period of fruit or pod setting or the seeds are in milking stage. For 1 acre spray 200 litres of water with 6 litres of sour buttermilk or 200 litres water with 2 litres matured coconut water or spray 200 litres of Sapta Dhanyankur Kashayayam. These three preparations are the best natural growth hormones will you produce very high-quality fruits and pods.

    ಬೇರು ಕೊಳೆತದ ಲಕ್ಷಣಗಳು

    ಆರೋಗ್ಯಕರ ಸಸ್ಯಗಳಿಗೆ ಹೋಲಿಸಿದರೆ ಸೋಂಕಿತ ಸಸ್ಯಗಳ ಬೆಳವಣಿಗೆ ನಿಧಾನವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.
    ಹಳೆಯ ಎಲೆಗಳು ಹಳದಿ ಮತ್ತು ಬೀಳುತ್ತವೆ.
    ಎಲೆಗಳ ಅಂಚುಗಳು ಸಾಯುತ್ತವೆ.

    ಕಾರಣಗಳು

    • ಕೆಟ್ಟ ನೀರು ನಿರ್ವಹಣಾ ಅಭ್ಯಾಸಗಳಿಂದ, ಸಸ್ಯ ಅಥವಾ ಮರದ ಬೇರು ವಲಯದಲ್ಲಿ ವಾಫಾಸಾದ ಅನುಪಸ್ಥಿತಿಯು ಬೇರು ಕೊಳೆತಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾರಣವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.
    • ಬೇರು ಕೊಳೆತವು ಪ್ರಾಥಮಿಕವಾಗಿ ಅತಿಯಾದ ನೀರುಹಾಕುವುದು ಅಥವಾ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ಕಾರ್ಯನಿರ್ವಹಿಸದ ಬೇರಿನ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಯಿಂದ ಉಂಟಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.
    • ಹೆಚ್ಚುವರಿ ನೀರಿಗೆ ದೀರ್ಘಕಾಲದವರೆಗೆ ಒಡ್ಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದರಿಂದ ವಾಟರ್ ಲಾಗಿಂಗ್ ಉಂಟಾಗುತ್ತದೆ, ಇದು ಬೇರುಗಳ ಗಾಳಿಯಾಡುವಿಕೆಗೆ ಅಡ್ಡಿಪಡಿಸುತ್ತದೆ, ಇದು ಕಡಿಮೆ ಆಮ್ಲಜನಕೀಕರಣ ಮತ್ತು ಕೊಳೆಯುವಿಕೆಗೆ ಕಾರಣವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.

    Note: Do not throw the extra seed submerged water. Save it for later use.

    When the sprouts are about 1 inch long, prepare the pulp of these seven types of germinated seeds. Grind with a stone, avoid using Mixer or Wet Grinder.

    Add the ground pulp into 200 litres of water. To this, add the extra water, you had saved earlier. To this pulp water, add 10 litre desi gomutra (native cow urine). Stir it well in clockwise direction using a stick. Let the solution stand for 2 hours. Now filter it by cloth and spray to the standing crop of fruits (small pebble size) or vegetables (small pods or fruits) or grains (at milking stage)

    This is a very effective tonic and growth promoter. You get a beautiful shine on the grains, fruits and vegetables. Quality of produce is enhanced and keeping quality is also increased.

    During monsoon season, since we do not apply irrigation water regularly to vegetables. Here’s how we can apply Jivamrita to vegetables

    In the first month after seed dibbling or seedling transplantation, you can add one cup (about 50ml), Jivamrita once or twice or thrice a month, between two main vegetable plants on the surface of soil.

    During second month, add one cup (about 50ml), Jivamrita twice or thrice a month between two plants.

    Later on, give one cup (about 50ml), Jivamrita once or twice a month.

    During the months of October and there-on, give 200 to 400 litre of Jivamrita per acre through irrigation water once or twice a month for any vegetable crop.

    1. First spray, is one month after seed sowing or transplanting of seedlings. For 1 acre, take 100 lt water, to this add 5 ltr filtered Jivamrita and spray.
    2. 21 days after the first spray, schedule your second spray. For 1 acre, take 150 litres water, to this add 10 litres filtered Jivamrita and spray.
    3. Schedule your third spray, 21 days after the second spray. For 1 acre, take 200 litres water, to this add 20 litres filtered Jivamrita and spray.
    4. By now, it is the initial period of fruit or pod setting or the seeds are in milking stage. For 1 acre spray 200 litres of water with 6 litres of sour buttermilk or 200 litres water with 2 litres matured coconut water or spray 200 litres of Sapta Dhanyankur Kashayayam.

    The Daxinayana path of the Sun from 21st June to 20th December is also the period of South-West and North-East Monsoon in India. During the monsoon season, there is continuous moisture in the soil and the temperature range is between 24-32 degrees centigrade and relative humidity is about 90%. This condition is ideal for the soil microorganisms to perform their activities well. The soil microorganisms are responsible for increasing the fertility of the soil by the creation of humus and thus in turn increase the production of crops.

    Jivamrita is the best culture of these beneficial soil micro-organisms and during monsoon season, we have to apply Jivamrita, as much as possible to the soil.

    Thus the monsoon season, is ideal for humus creation by soil micro-organisms in the soil and also it is the time the plants and crops grow speedily.
